The Magic of Windswept Bay

Somewhere with YouSassy, opinionated Shar Sinclair is passionate about the sea turtles she rescues in the Windswept Bay area and as needful of her freedom as they are. She’s content with her life, helping run the family resort and looking out for the wildlife around her. But sometimes she wishes she had someone to share her passion, and passions, with. But that might mean giving up some of her freedom and she’s not sure she could do that for anyone…

Gage Lancaster is a self-made millionaire used to getting what he wants, but lately there’s an emptiness and a restlessness to his life that he can’t seem to fill. While visiting Windswept Bay, he spies a beautiful woman on the beach, struggling to rescue a sea turtle tangled in fishing line, and goes to help. Gage is captivated by the fire and passion that radiates from Shar and he knows instantly he wants her. But this may be one time when what he wants might not be an option.

Sparks fly on the sunset beach and sparkling blue waters of the romantic Windswept Bay as Gage and Shar battle through their attraction. Gage is determined that this is one time he’ll do whatever it takes to get what he wants. But can Shar open her heart to him? Can he convince Shar that love doesn’t mean shackles…but a lifetime shared with the one you love?

Like the sweet music of a love song, Windswept Bay has a magic of its own and on moonlight nights and sun bronzed days, love is in the air. Debra Clopton’s new series will sweep you away to romance that leaves your heart thumping with the satisfaction of pure heartwarming romance

Sadly, sweet summertime is winding down and this Texas girl always hates to see it go. I love summer and spend half of it at home working on my latest romance and the other half traveling all across the country with my husband. Since my computer will happily travel, I’ve written some of my best work on airplanes and road tripping through the beautiful country. Despite the fact that I travel so much, up to this point all of my books have been set in my  beloved Texas but this summer I’m diversifying with a new series and a new setting.

So I’m thrilled to be celebrating the release of my new Windswept Bay series.  These books feature the nine Sinclair family brothers and sisters who are all about to encounter love, one book at a time, on the shores of their beloved family owned Windswept Bay Resort. Book One, FROM THIS MOMENT ON, released on July 21 and Book Two,  SOMEWHERE WITH YOU will be released on September 13.   Then in October, FOREVER AND FOR ALWAYS is coming followed by HOLDING OUT FOR LOVE, my first release in 2017.

From This Moment OnMingled in with each romantic story of the Sinclair siblings: Cali, Shar, Jillian, Olivia, Cam, Levi, Jake, Max and Trent, will be short stories of visitors falling in love at the resort too, adding to this multi-layered sweet but romantic series.

I love creating this series and being able to bring in elements other than my love of spunky Texas heroines and heart-stopping cowboys that I feature in my New Horizon Ranch series which released Book Eight,  AUSTIN, this month. Windswept Bay is a place to highlight my love of the Florida coast, sun bronzed days, moonlit nights, and all the adventure and romance in this gorgeous area. Since my family vacations in the Florida Keys every summer, and I look forward to it each year, this new series was a natural fit for me.

I hope you’ll pick up a copy and get swept away with the romance of Windswept Bay.

If you’re looking for a cowboy lookin’ for love, grab a copy of AUSTIN, New Horizon Ranch Book Eight, or one of the other books in this popular, fun, and heartwarming romantic series.

I have an author friend with a creative muse named “Boris.” When brainstorming together we often invoke the WWBD question. She is a talented author and a good friend, so the existence of Boris is an accepted given in our interactions. What she doesn’t know (shh, don’t tell her) is that every time she mentions… Read More
